Happy Friday everyone!
It’s hard to believe that Christmas is only three weeks from today! I am usually so much more prepared by this time but I guess all the craziness of this year just has me a bit behind.
I do have all my decorations out but I have barely started shopping. I’d usually have lots of presents wrapped and under the tree…but as of right now there’s not one single wrapped present! Now that the boys are getting older, their presents are much more expensive so there just aren’t many to wrap. Their toys used to cost $10…now they want computers and gaming systems that are hundreds of dollars. I might be wrapping pairs of socks individually just to give them something to open–hahahaha!
My boys really won’t care too much about the presents. They each get to pick one “big” thing and that’s really all they will care about. I just love the way the tree looks with all those pretty presents under it. But, since I am probably the only one who will see it this year…it really won’t matter what it looks like—right?! My wish is that everyone is happy and healthy, the rest is really not that important.
Jake has a band concert tomorrow. The kids will do multiple performances throughout the day so that parents can come in small groups to watch them perform. So that will be my big event for the week. I told my husband that I might actually fix my hair and look human. My wardrobe has consisted of hoodies and pajamas for a while now so I might even break out something nice just to pretend like things are normal!
Then Jim’s birthday is Sunday. I offered to go pick up whatever food he was craving and make him a cake. He hasn’t come up with any requests yet…so I’ll have to wait and see what he decides on! Other than than, we’ll just hang out and try to relax a bit. I hope you guys enjoy the weekend as well.
If you have shopped and want to share your weekly totals, leave a comment. Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
